QUESTION: I admire your hard work on this subject. I do question your "in vitro" tests of food lectins directly with blood. The work of Weston A. Price in the 30's completely invalidates your blood type theories. The key is to eat all foods raw. Lectins are easily dealt with when fruit, veggies, grains(soaked, fermented) dairy(raw), meat and eggs are all eaten raw as intended by nature. Enzymes and digestion is swift. Lectins do not absorb in bloodstream intact.
ANSWER: 1. On the subject of lectins directly reaching the blood intact, you might want to do some basic research, since you are arguing with the majority of researchers who work with them, not just myself.
2. If you want to get your information from the 1930's, that's fine, but for my money the only thing Weston Price proved was that cats probably shouldn't eat a diet exclusively comprised of milk.
3. I would think twice about eating raw eggs or meat and I would think three times about it if I were sick, a child or elderly. That's just foolishly suicidal.
